When I finish the Ebbles UD41 dropship, I will make the M722 light recon vehicle for it. My initial plans were to make the UD41's medical bay option for the interior, but I realized that the M722 recon vehicle can fit inside it perfectly. According to Ebbles himself, he actually made the M722 for the UD41, so I am going to go all the way and build them both.
However, I realized that I should be able to go half and half and replace some of the M722's personnel seats with a few of the UD41's medical pods!
I will definitely do this, but a neat idea popped into my head a few minutes prior to me making this thread;
Replace the fake windows on the medical pods with overhead projector sheet stuff or inkjet transparencies if I have to, make some cloth padding for the inside of the pods(using scrap white sheets and something to fill the padding with), put some injured soldiers/civilians, and color portions of the sheet red for bleeding detail if the injuries require it.
To do this, I need some prone, injured soldiers/civilian models. I doubt there are any 3d papercraft models, so I am asking if anyone knows where I could get some 1/60 28mm injured plastic peoples. Papercraft will do if they are good enough.

If you gimp (or photoshop) you could recolour this into a 3d medical patient.
Here are the instructions to help you out
Hang Gliding Holmes Instructions
I cut out, edge and glue the pieces together one at a time to avoid losing small pieces. I build with card stock because I have trouble getting photopaper to curl and adhere.
1. Use the red lines as guides to score all the indicated parts before you cut any out. 2. Cut out and edge “the core of your figure.” 3. Starting at the widest end (i.e. the neck,) roll the core lenthwise as tightly as possible. 4. Open up the core, apply some glue and roll again as tightly as possible. Make sure to glue down the ends of the head and the longest bit that gives Sherlock his chest. 5. Put the head seam against your work surface and press down on the chest to give the figure an oval cross section. 6. Cut out and edge one of the legs. (They are the plaid pieces with brown “boots” on the end.) 7. Fold the scored tabs back and curl the leg so that the tabs meet each other and are hidden inside. There will be an uncurled flap at the top. 8. Open up the leg again, apply glue and glue the tabs inside the leg. 9. Bend the bottom part of the leg that has no tab away from the seam to form the foot. 10.Put glue on the flap and attach the leg to the core by wrapping the flap around the bottom (where the plaid is.) Make sure the foot is pointing forward (away from the seam on the back of the head. 11.Repeat steps 6 to 10 with the other leg 12.Cut out the vest and glue it over the chest, facing front. 13.Cut out one of the jacket halves. Fold it along the score line so that the jacket has a lining edge and glue. 14.Curl the bottom of the jacket half and glue it to one side of the core. 15.Repeat steps 13 and 14 with the other jacket half. 16.Cut out and edge one of the arms. Fold the scored tabs back and curl the arm so that the tabs meet each other and are hidden. DO NOT GLUE YET! 17.Cut out and edge one of the hands. Fold it in half and glue the halves together. 18.Glue the hand tab underneath the forearm tab of the arm. The three plaid tabs are at the shoulder end of the arm. 19.Curl the arm again as in step 16 but this time glue the tabs together inside the arm. 20.Curl the hand into a fist and bend the arm at the elbow. When deciding how to bend the elbow, remember you want to hid the seam by having it face backwards. 21.Fold the plaid tabs inside the shoulder, apply glue to the tabs and attach the arm to the figure. 22.Repeat steps 16 to 21 with the other arm. 23. Cut out and edge the rectangle with the face and hair, curl slightly and glue it in place. 24.Cut out and edge one of the hat brims, curl it slightly and glue it to the front of the figure above the eyebrows. 25.Repeat step 24 placing the second brim on the back of the figure's head. 26.Cut out and edge the top of the hat. Glue the front and back onto the figure and then glue down the sides. The front and back have curved ends, the sides are straight on the bottom. 27.Cut out the cloak. You can leave the whole in the middle until after it is folded. Edge. 28.Fold along the score line, glue and cut out the notch for the neck. 29.The fin is optional. (I left it off of my final entry to Papercuts because it ripped while I was burnishing it. If using the fin (it makes aerodynamic sense and really, Sherlock would have one) cut out and edge the fin. Fold the tabs up, then fold the fin in half and glue it together without gluing the tabs together. 30.Put glue on the tabs and attach the fin to the bottom of the cloak. The bottom of the cloak is the side where you can see the struts clearly. The folded edge of the fin should face away from the neck hole. 31.Curl the cloak between the struts slightly so it looks like the struts are holding the cloak down against the wind. 32.Glue cloak to the back of the figure and glue the hands to underside of the cloak. 33.Place figure on a flying base of your choice. I made mine out of clear plastic packaging and used a needle to make a hole in the bottom of the torso to accept the stand. Just enough room left for me to say: “I hope you enjoy your model.”
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.

Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'
May 26, 2020 8:07:25 GMT -9
wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.
May 13, 2020 11:02:25 GMT -9
squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!
May 13, 2020 4:10:32 GMT -9
shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
